Oh what a night,
7 cosmopolitians and
3 hours later a wave of vertigo descended upon me.
Stired me up like a cosmic soup.

The porcelon Godd of hedonism,
called me and demanded my redemption,
for I had committed a sin,
a sin against the eternal balance of the Universe: Moderation.

I kneeled before the Porcelon Godd of hedonism,
showing much and deep humility - spilling my guts and giving many offers,
begging for forgiveness.

I prayed to the porcellon godd and he said flush
these polluted waters and learn a lesson.
And so I did, I followed my masters advice and as I looked into the soul of the god of

I saw a galaxy of swirling water, gas, intestinal
chunks, blood and vomit.

As the galaxy swirled around its center,
I noticed a black hole at the center of the galaxy and the black hole swallowed all that was bad and poisonous.

I saw the end of time, the universe collapse upon itself.
The building blocks of life and the Universe rise and fall. I was revealed the secrets of the universe.

The porcelin godd spake to me, "All in
moderation, Don't be swallowed into the abyss."

Very Apollonian in your humilty in prostrating before this porcelain effigy LOL Although Apollo certainly did not condone hedonism in excess, he did think it was important, according to Grecian philosophers, who held that only what is pleasant or has pleasant consequences is intrinsically good (Greek hēdonē, pleasure). Excess or immoderation was thought to be encouraged by one particular sect, the Epicureans, however, due to physical health and fellowship concerns, still stressed all things which give us pleasure and happiness in moderation. Hence the misconception in the statement: "Epicurean pleasures", which in contemporary society has come to mean something vastly different than it once did.

I found your poem inspiring because it made me think of differing topics: hedonism, moderation, pantheism, Grecian philosophy. Graphic but good.

"A cry to sunder the stillness
The proud heron grieves"
